“We rely on information from local people to start our investigations"
An enormous flytip on Tooting Common
Flytipping enforcement officers have reported issuing 263 fines for littering, 8 fines for littering from a vehicle, and successfully tracking down and fining 13 flytippers last month (July).
The team has also taken action against businesses that don’t properly manage their waste and have issued 84 penalty charge notices to local traders for not complying with the law.
Enforcement officer Rodney Koo says “We are out every day searching for evidence within flytips to catch those responsible for ruining our borough’s streets. We often speak to local people who feel their area is being disrespected by those who simply dump waste out in public.
“We rely on information from local people to start our investigations. If you have any information that could help us identity or catch a flytipper in the act then please get in touch and we will treat your evidence in strict confidence.”
